made in Vado Ligure, Italy
The very first Traxx 2E DC locomotive, E483 001 was assembled in Kassel. This pilot project was used for training employees from the Bombardier site in Vado Ligure (I). The Italian Bombardier site is per January 2007 the official 'center of competence' for all Traxx 2E DC locomotives.

The Traxx DC a direct derivate from the Traxx MS version, being a more simple and more economic alternative. It is specially specially developed for the domestic Polish, Italian and Spanish market, where 3kV DC catenary is the standard.

Except for 483.001, all Traxx DC have a 'Italian' works number. The number used on our site are based on information from Bombardier Vado Ligure and represent the factory number of the electric equipment of that unit. As far as we know, all Renfe S/253 units have a Italian works number, even the ones that were not assembled in Italy. As you may know, 45 machines of this serie were sent to Villaverde (ES) as kits.
